HOW TO FIND SOMETHING YOU LOST

IF YOU LOSE SOMETHING IN YOUR HOUSE, YOU SHOULD TAKE AN EMPTY
GLASS, AND IT MUST BE GLASS, AND TURN IT UPSIDE DOWN NEAR
RUNNING WATER (A SINK, ETC.). LEAVE THE GLASS THERE UNTIL YOU
FIND WHAT YOU LOST. YOU WILL FIND IT, AS LONG AS IT IS IN THE
HOUSE. THIS ALWAYS WORKS.

Submitter comment: MR. SNIDER LEARNED THIS FROM HIS MOTHER IN OHIO WHO IS NOT THE
LEAST BIT SURPRISED WHEN SOMEBODY FINDS SOMETHING BY EMPLOYING
THIS METHOD. IT IS TAKEN FOR GRANTED THAT THIS WORKS.

Where learned: OHIO ; CLEVELAND

Keyword(s): ADVICE ; FAUCET
